the motive there is not clear. and a fox urgent now. for the first time tonight, united nations ambassador susan rice is fighting back against her critics. first the back story here. she went on five sunday morning talk shows days after the attack on the consulate in benghazi that killed our ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. and said it was due to anger over that film insulting islam. we now know that was wrong. u.s. officials acknowledged it was a coordinated terror attack. republic lawmakers said ambassador rice was either deliberately misleading or quote incompetent. just minutes ago she spoke at the u.n. and took those critics to task. listen. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. everyone, particularly the intelligence community, has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available. >> last week
was a terrorist attack. but that isn't what the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said when she went on national television five days after the attack. today rice is up on capitol hill. she's explaining what happened and some big-name republicans clearly are not very happy with her answers. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is following what's become a pretty long day -- a tiring day for the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. what's the latest, dana? >> reporter: wolf, the three republican senators who had vowed to block susan rice from being secretary of state if the president nominates her had really softened the rhetoric in recent days. i'm told the reason for that was because it was a curtesy in order for them to wait until they had a face-to-face meeting with her which was today. after that meeting their criticism was harsher than ever. the way these grim-faced gop senators tell it, susan rice's attempt to calm their criticism backfired. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get. >> i'm more disturbed now than i
to the united nations, you go well beyond unclassified talking points in the daily preparation and responsibilities for that job. >> rice met with senator lieberman who asked whether rice was coached by the administration before her sunday show appearances. >> she said no, she was not given messaging points at all by the white house. >> in a written statement, rice who was joined by the acting c.i.a. director on the hill said, "we explain that the talking point provideed by the intelligence community and the initial assessment upon which they were based were incorrect in key respect." there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. full week after the attack on david letterman, the president was still blaming the anti-islam video. >> extremists and terrorists use this as an excuse to attack a variety of the embassies, including the one, the consulate in libya. >> the united nations on september 25, critics charge mr. obama double down. >> the united states government had nothing to do with the video. i believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humani
an effective purposeful and impressive ambassador of the united nations. she has many, many qualifications to serving e in higher office. i've been in both positions, serving in democratic and republican administrations in the past, of going out in public and explaining views. i know it's always a collective effort to try to determine what one says to explain a position. and so i just think that that -- that the focus on her, the sole focus on her is not correct. i think she deserves better treatment than this. >> congressman, what is your response to today? >> i agree with ambassador burns completely. i think susan rice has been an extraordinary ambassador to the united nations. she's smart, hard working, et c ethical, honest and just a superb candidate for secretary of state, if the president makes that decision. i find it mind-boggling that some of the gop senators continue to go after her. it's completely unjustified. and i can only conclude that having failed to deny the president a second term, they now want to deny him the cabinet of his choice. but that is a terrible disservice to
